Leather is one of nature’s most wonderful, durable goods. The tanning process provides the leather with a resistance to moisture and keeps the leather supple. Leather’s high tensile strength makes it a strong, flexible material. It will stretch and then return to its original shape. Leather breathes and will assume your body temperature rapidly as it allows air and water to pass through it’s structure. There are three types of damages that leather is primarily susceptible to: Stiffness and Surface Cracking caused by it’s natural oils drying out, Fiber Discoloration due to accidental spills or sun exposure, and Scuffing or Tearing usually resulting from use and wear and tear.

Leather Care and Cleaning Tips:
A Comprehensive Protection Plan makes it easier for you to maintain your furniture, however, regular care and cleaning will keep all your leather upholstered furniture looking newer for a longer period of time.
Once A Week:
Dust your furniture at the same time you do your regular dusting. You can also lightly dampen a soft cloth with a Leather Softener or Cleaner and wipe the surface of your leather furniture. One of the great benefits of leather is that you can fully remove the dust particles from the surface, making leather furniture ideal for a dust-sensitive person.
Four Times A Year:
Fully clean your Leather furniture at least every 6 months. For furniture located in the most commonly used rooms, it is recommended that you clean them every four months instead. It is important that you pay particular attention to cleaning all high-usage and skin contact areas such as: arms, seats, front railing, back cushions and inside backs.
After completing the full cleaning/spot cleaning, apply a Leather Protection Cream/Softener/Cleaner to renew the original protection level. Be sure to re-apply it to all high usage and skin contact areas.
